503.70 Student Performances

Students, as part of the education program, may participate in contests or other public and private events approved by the Superintendent/designee that will be of benefit to the student and the education program. Performance at such events is a privilege.

Students, who perform at such events, serve as ambassadors of the District and must conduct themselves in the same manner as required in the regular school day. Students who fail to abide by this policy may be subject to disciplinary measures according to Policy 503.60 Good Conduct Rule and Policy Series 502 Behavior and Discipline.

Students will be allowed to perform in these events only with proper permission and supervision and when the events do not disrupt the education program or other District operations. The events must be approved by the Superintendent/designee, unless it involves unusual travel and expense, in which case the Board must approve of the performance.

It is within the discretion of the Superintendent/designee to determine whether the event will benefit the education program and the participating students. Contests or other performances by students not approved by the Superintendent/designee are the responsibility of the parent and the student.
